Millennium Falcon Day 2 (Build Journal)

Millennium Falcon Day 2 Build Journal

Welcome to my Millennium Falcon day 2 build journal. I am currently documenting the process of building the Ultimate Collector Series Millennium Falcon (75192) by the LEGO® Group. The second day of assembly went much quicker than the first. Whereas day one took almost two hours, today took only 57 minutes. With that said, there is not much to report. The second bag set raises the entire frame up off the ground. Essentially, you assemble six landing struts. The process becomes very repetitive.

Interestingly, I found a new use for part of the packaging today. When you first open the main box, you remove a cardboard lid covering the four smaller boxes inside. This lid makes an excellent brick tray for your pieces. The Falcon is already so large after the first day of building that I fear my usual build table is not big enough. The tray helps to keep all the bits and pieces from rolling off the surface as I shuffle things around to ensure it all fits on the table. I may keep this tray for the future since it has a nice, printed design on it.

The landing struts look neat. However, they are a bit boring to build. Overall, after the second day of building, the overall structure does not resemble the Millennium Falcon very much. It is still largely just a frame. Be sure to check back soon and see what day three has in store. In the meantime, you can check out the time lapse video of today’s build below. It was very hard to include everything in the frame.

Until next time,
